The Cottage Hearth October 1889, Vol XV No.10
The Cottage Hearth was published in Boston Massachusetts. It
contained a mixture of fashion, puzzles, stories, and songs. Wilkie was
one of four authors listed in a two page piece 'People in Whom You Are
Interested'. The engraving was probably based on a Sarony photograph. The
very short biography which gave the wrong year for his birth (1825 rather
than 1824) was clearly written before his death on 23 September 1889.
